[mod_python] How do you make a subrequest?

I don't think that is what req.internal_redirect() does.  I want the 
main request and the sub request to participate in the output, for 
example, a server side include:

Main request puts out the html header information, then calls a sub 
request to put out the menu html, then the main request takes over 
again and outputs the rest of the page, etc.

I really need the sub request to return it content to me, and not to 
the user.  With internal_redirect(), the original request loses control 
over the process, when I would like it to participate again.
